After a hugely successful 3 day festival in Bombay - packed with screenings, panel discussions, open mic and filmmaker interactions, the 2nd FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival now travels to New Delhi.
The 2nd FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival will be held in New Delhi from February 3rd - 5th, 2012 at Alliance Francaise de Delhi.
This year the festival will screen 17 films that take a critical and empathetic look at several human rights issues – from religious fundamentalism, communal violence, political authoritarianism, war crimes, homophobia, surrogacy, migrant rehabilitation, women empowerment, corruption and poverty.
The films shine a harsh beam on human rights violations in, as diverse countries as, Kenya, Senegal, Columbia, Israel, Iraq, Kurdistan, Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Cameroon, USA and India.
This year, for the first time, the festival screens six films that are set in India focusing on human rights issues and human right defenders – Firaaq, Mee Sindutai Sakpal, Cotton For My Shroud, Made In India, In Search Of My Home and Pink Saris.
While six of the films have been curated from the Movies That Matter (Netherlands) programme, two from Nuremberg International Human Rights Film Festival, two by guest curator Paul Lee (Canada), rest of the films are handpicked by FLASHPOINT’s festival director Sridhar Rangayan.
FLASHPOINT Human Rights Film Festival is organized by Solaris Pictures in collaboration with Movies That Matter, Alliance Francaise de Delhi and Ramon Productions.
